Cultural and Linguistic Competence Coordinators Network for State, Territorial, and Tribal Mental Health Services
Recovery for All: August 2008
The Multicultural Action Center has teamed up with the National Technical Assistance Center for Children’s Mental Health and the National Center for Cultural Competence at Georgetown University Center for Child and Human Development to create the Cultural and Linguistic Competence (CLC) Coordinators Network. The goal of the CLC Coordinators Network is to enhance the capacity of individuals serving as cultural and linguistic competence coordinators in their mental health system. It will provide information and resources, link to national and federal cultural and linguistic competence activities and resources, serve as a sounding board for solution finding, and expand a network of allies and partners to promote system transformation.
The CLC Coordinators Network is advised by a group comprised of state cultural and linguistic competence coordinators, the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors, the Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health, National Indian Child Welfare Association, NAMI affiliates, mental health providers, foundation representatives, and other expert stakeholders committed to supporting cultural and linguistic competence coordinators.
The first activity of the full network will be a meeting via conference call early this fall to establish the needs of the participants and plan how best to meet them.
